Lewisville police have issued a warning after two people reported that a man pretending to be a code enforcement officer tried to get into their backyards.
Twice on Tuesday afternoon, a man who wasn't wearing proper city attire or identification told residents on Holly Oak Drive and Tanner Drive that he was a code enforcement officer and needed to get into their backyard.
Police said the impersonator, described as an African-American man wearing a white shirt and tie, wasn't allowed in by either resident.
All code enforcement officers wear city-issued shirts, IDs and badges and drive trucks with the city logo on the doors, police said.
